ECCVID (ESCMID Conference on Coronavirus Disease)


The ESCMID Conference on Coronavirus Disease (ECCVID) will take place online from Wednesday 23rd to Friday 25th September 2020 and will cover all aspects of COVID-19. ECCVID will feature a comprehensive scientific programme that will span a wide range of topics surrounding this emerging threat. 

COVID-19 is a major public health incident which has brought about significant challenges and uncertainties with respect to diagnostics, therapeutics and infection prevention and control. We are learning continually about the new SARS-CoV-2 virus and an international scientific event that brings together the latest research and scientific evidence is very timely. ECCVID will offer excellent opportunities to showcase the latest findings, share experiences and knowledge and demonstrate practical techniques and guidance. 

Internationally renowned clinical microbiologists, infectious diseases specialists and experts from related disciplines will present their work and latest findings on COVID-19, during the event.

This page is constantly updated with all the information about the event. All the latest news will be also shared on our our social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

We hope you will join us for this incredible experience as we explore this global challenge.
